Plantronics has been highly respected for their high-end headphones for mobile devices. One of their premium products is in the very essence of BackBet Sense, a pair of headphones that aims for the crowd who takes the balance between performance, portability and price a high priority in their list.
Design and Concept
Comparing it to its older sibling, the BackBeat Pro, BackBeat Sense is the lesser one. Noticeably, it is lighter, more compact and less bulky. If anything, it is not even considered bulky at all! We can describe the design as something modern enough but not too revolutionary. It is not something that bores the artistically inclined and is not intrusive for the ones with practical taste. There’s cushioning right at the ear cups and the band is elastic enough to conform into any head size. You can take charge of the controls through the physical buttons outside the ear cups. Twist the ear cup’s ring and you get to adjust the volumes without poking additional buttons.
You can also download the free Plantronics Hub app which is compatible for Windows, iOS, Mac and Android. With the app, you can check on its battery status, connectivity, and a list of guides. You can also opt for the Find MyHeadset app which functions exactly as its name, considering that your device and the headphones are connected.
Connectivity and Performance
The brand claims that BackBeat Sense uses an A1 Bluetooth connectivity which enables it to stay connected with the device within 330 feet radius. With your $180, you also get a fair amount of bass with the all audio ranges distributed evenly, so one may not overpower the others. You also get the OpenMic feature which aids your hearing or more like helps you acquire a superhuman kind of hearing (but no eavesdropping, please!).
